What Makes a Leader?

A leader is capable of making a decision.
Decision making carries a risk, and not everyone is willing to take that risk.  Therefore, not everyone can be a leader.

The decision is made for the greater good beyond oneself.
It moves a family.

It moves a company.

It moves a community.

It moves a country.

The decision made may not please everyone.

But a leader can make everyone falls in line, by earning their respect.

Respect is something a leader should earn, it is not given.

A leader is willing to listen.

A leader is willing to lend a hand.

A leader is willing to share the success.

A leader is willing to take the blame, for the decisions made.
